This complete course covers grammar, composition, and spelling skills in a traditional worktext format, somewhat similar to A Beka's, although in a less intensive manner. Included are the student studyguide, quizzes, and answer keys for both. Among topics covered at this level are sentences, capitalization, punctuation, nouns, pronouns, verbs, adjectives, subjects, predicates, contractions, homonyms, dictionary use, and composition of letters and short "essays." Spelling is taught via separate lessons for each week found at the back of the studyguide. Students are held accountable in their compositions for only those skills and spelling words they have already learned. Many of the lessons will take little time to complete, but the occasional lengthier writing assignments and compositions will probably require much more time. Students should be able to complete most of their lessons independently, but at this grade level they will still need some teaching assistance. Also, parents will need to evaluate writing assignments.
